Caroline Springs School of Music offer lessons in all woodwinds instruments.


We have expert teachers in Saxophone, Clarinet, flute and other woodwinds.

We are the longest established school woodwinds lessons in Caroline Springs – We were voted Melbourne's' best music school in 2016 by the APAC business insider awards.

Our external exam marks in ANZCA and AMEB are consistently among the highest in the country. We encourage all students to sit woodwinds exams. If you wish to just learn for recreational purposes; that is fine, we can tailor a program to help you achieve your goals.

Our program has been developed over the last quarter of a century by ANZCA examiner and former tertiary educator (VCA, Melbourne Uni and NMIT); Brendan Hains. F.Dip.A.  All of our woodwinds student's progress is closely monitored by Brendan and our Administration, feel free to make an appointment to speak with us at any time.

Our teachers are drawn from the finest available in Melbourne, all teachers are highly qualified and have working with children checks. We do not accept 2 year diplomas as adequate teaching qualifications. All of our teachers have extensive professional performing experience, they will not however cancel teaching in favour of performances, our teachers are committed to your music education before any other consideration, they perform in their own time not yours! 

The primary emphasis of our woodwinds lessons is fostering correct technique. Regular scale and arpeggio practice is essential to one’s progress. In addition to exam preparation (which is by no means compulsory) students are encouraged to learn material of their own choice. All students are encouraged to perform at our end of year concert (and awards ceremony) along with regular recitals throughout the year.

We teach all styles of woodwinds from Medieval, Baroque, Classical, Romantic and Modern styles including Pop, Rock, Jazz and more.

Aural (ear) training exercises are conducted for a minute or two every lesson. A good ear is essential to good woodwinds playing.

General knowledge and appreciation of music history including the finest composers and exponents of the instrument are taught regularly.

We accept woodwinds students as young as 7 years old. We also have a number of adult students, it is never too late to learn!
